    It needs some black stone guards - the mirrors look great though...may have to copy that!

    This morning I saw a 991 parked outside my apartment building. It belongs to one of my neighbours. My wife had seen the same car the day before and she spotted instantly that it was a 991. She told me about it yesterday evening.

    Is this one of the first customer 991s on the road? I don't know ...

    There for sale everywhere at dealers, so probably close to one of the first but not quite.

    Not everywhere. The dealer here hasn't got their first one yet, not even demo car.

    I like it most of the times I see it in live driving, except when I saw it from behind  parked in an underground parking between two other cars . I was shocked how high the back is  now ( and the wings around the back wheels were nearly at the hight of the windows of the cars next to it. It did not look nice. The line across the back made it probably look even higher then what it actually is.

    But otherwise, specially from the side, it looks goergous.

    John, I was told by the dealer that the exterior looks identical, but the PSE has ridges lining the interior of the exhausts.

    What is the weight difference between Steel and Pccb ?


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    Na Mezger:

    What is the weight difference between Steel and Pccb ?

    Approximately 50% lighter. On a Boxster S for example it is 15-16kgs overall. On a 911 more.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    gotta be one of the last to actually see a 991. local dealer had a basalt/tan -s on the lot, certainly no stripper @ 122k...mea culpa as i have not been a 991 fan based on the numerous pics. seeing one in the flesh quickly changed all that for me....all my percieved awkwardness of many details vanished....i actually think the front running lights look exceptional, make the 997 look , well old. same with the rear tail lights. really didnt like the interior console however again it looked like it should have been this way on the 997. ... mirrors on the doors , really just completes the overall teriffic look of this car.....can't see the engine , im over that as well...i never doubted the performance capabilities and i think given a couple of years they will sort out the electric steering and the few other not spot on driving characteristics....

    guess im really just wondering at what point i can order a turbo , im thinking mexico blue


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    I loved it in the pictures, hated it in real life. NEVER SELLING MY 997!

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    Love them all, some more then others. The top 3 though have to be the Classic 911, 993, and 997. 


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    I liked the 993 (very unique and different compared to the 964, e.g.), and the 991.

    Same here....993 and 991.....sounds great! Smiley

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991... (LAUNCH thread)

    great video - but comparing a 997 Mk1 non-s - vs a 991 S is probably not showing the true picture. However, the idea is great - a bigger line up with GT3's and Turbo's would have been even better broken heart (still a fan of the 964 sound !)
